I joined KZNWIB in 2010 shortly after we opened our office of WSI. In the last 6 years I have grown from a shy, unsure newbie into the Chairperson of the organisation. These women have fed my soul, taught me about business and held my hand when times were tough. They are my support system and my sounding board - I would not be where I am today without this organisation.

KZNWIB is not like any other networking organisation I've ever been involved in. More than business alliances are forged in this group, true friendships are developed.
Whenever I am looking for a service provider, fellow KZNWIB members are my first port of call. Not only do I use many fellow members as service providers but I in turn have received a lot of business from fellow members, which I am so very grateful for!
